Rated 5 out of 5 by FatRakoon The almost perfect case... Almost.
This case, is the almost perfect case for me...But the reason I say almost, is that I had to reluctantly send the thing back, and I am utterly gutted because of it.
I had the dimenstions measured up, but I had the height mised up with the length.
Had they made the lenght and height the other way round, then I would be using this case without a doubt.
Where I have my PC, is using a small alcove in my living room. The case that I am already using, is a Thermaltake Armor and with teh cables sticking out the back, the case sticks out by around 13" - with the keyboards shelf also sticking out, this is not too bad, however this Core X9 case would be sticking out even further, plus, because it is wider, I have nowhere to put my feet under and so I would be out even further, and then that means that people cannot get past me without me moving, and well, I am in a wheelchair and so it was just not a viable option.
Even more irritating to me, is that my PC room is upstairs and I can no longer access that, otherwise I would have used it for another PC without question.
I was even considering using extended cables and putting the case in the corner of the room, but we went through this idea before with my Mozart TX case and decided against it.
If you have the room, then to not own one of these cases, is just mental.
This is perhaps the most perfect case that I have seen in such a long time, however, for me, it was just that little bit too big.
Had they made it higher and shorter, I would grab one again, or if I move house ( I am looking ) and my computer area is not so silly like it is now, then I will be buying this wihtout question.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Montin Massive and good
Ok, this case is massive. It's big enough for 2 or 3 normal PC's to live inside. So if your interested in this case (the white or black version) then get out a measuring device and figure out where your going to put this. Also once loaded up it's as heavy as a small motorbike, or at least it feels like it. By far the largest and heaviest PC I've ever built.
That aside and indeed the size isn't a bad thing, just something to be aware of. The case is very well built, good quality. The ability to change bits around is extreme and so useful. I read about this case but didn't appreciate actually how versatile this case actually is. This is just a brilliant case.
It's very easy to keep cables out of sight. In fact the hardest part of dealing with this case is trying to figure out what to do with all the spare room. Incidentally the 2 fans it comes with are actually very good which makes a change. As I normally swap out any case supplied fans with decent ones. These I have kept, first time ever!
I'm glad I bought the white case. I kind of think the black would have been to visually invasive, but cant be sure. I would certainly buy this case again even given the fairly high cost. In fact my opinion of Thermaltake is now very high. I'm glad I got this case.
